So I enjoyed writing about Margaret Moran pinning Sex (ok, aka Seoul Express) to the bulkhead this weekend, and it led me here . . . to the pins that are invisible while in use . . . (hmmm this too could lead into risque territory… oh I love spring time.)  Anyhow, Davis Sea (launched 1982) has 

aapnds

pins although I don’t know how long back she was pinned.

So does Norwegian Sea (launched 1976)

aapnns

although Maryland just beyond her does not, as evidenced by the push cables.

Scott Turecamo‘s (launched 1998) come from a different manufacturer, the same one that Craig Eric Reinauer‘s come

aapnst

from although Craig Eric (launched 1979) has a service ladder

aacerpin

I wonder when someone would use that fixed ladder.

Of course, other pin designs exist also such as this

on Penn Maritime’s Julie (launched 1998).

All these pins have nothing, though, to do with how Margaret was pinning Sex to the bulkhead.
